Selene holds a degree in conservation with an orientation in archaeological and ethnographic works from the Haute Ecole Arc in Neuchâtel. Over the years, she has worked in the field of conservation and restoration with various museums both in French-speaking Switzerland and in Ticino.
In 2020, she decided to undertake a new degree course in Museum Studies at the University of Neuchâtel. This path brings her closer to MUSEC, enabling her to collaborate on the mounting of several exhibitions and the conservation of the museum's collections.
Her favourite work originates from New Guinea, it is a chewing lime container with a handle carved in the shape of a bird from the Brignoni Collection. Selene loves this artefact because it protects and preserves the contents inside just as a museum does with its works.
